Introspection creates an interesting play between mirrors and light questioning the viewer’s perception of space. When entering the House of Detention, one notices the intrusion of concrete elements in contrast with the original envelope of the building. Openings have been closed off affecting the circulation, creating dead ends, detours and a feeling of entrapment.
The staircase was sealed off with a concrete slab resulting in a non-functional space lacking light and perspective. Introspection opens up the space by creating new perspectives and plays with the viewer’s usual perception of it. The observer is confronted to his own experience of the space and forced to look at it in a completely new way.
